At least eight people are believed to be seriously injured, and three of them are being evaluated at the scene.

A 57-year-old woman was taken to Jefferson Hospital, a 60-year-old woman was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. Two other victims, a 94-year-old woman and a 48-year-old woman were taken to Hahnemann University Hospital for treatment.
